I got my blood tests, doctor stuff back. Good news! In 4 months my cholesterol went from 268 to 171, & my glucose from 126 to 106. Those were the main 2 I was the most concerned about, oh yeah, then my weight, from 285# to 241#. I still have a ways to go but I am feeling so much better. I am happy to report that I am out of the "high risk" for a stroke. Thanks to everyone at DC for all the wonderful support!! I could not have done it without all of you!!!

Oh I am so very proud of you SB!!! We knew you could do it! I know it is not easy but since you have all this progress it should give you that much more strength, energy and incentive to soldier on through the next phase. Don't forget to tell us your lows too - we are here to praise you and to lift you up!

Okay, my news. A lot of the doubt and tears were because I was missing my thyroid medication - it isn't prescription but obviously is doing something for me. My depression was at an all time low yesterday and I was trying to get things ready for today's Christmas party with TB's family. I was hungry but afraid to eat things in fear they were bad for me. Finally I figured out the medication, TB ran to the store and a few hours after I took some I calmly finished the dreaded crochet slippers.

I also got my wedding rings back on for the first time in about 6 months. There is no point in having them sized because my fingers go up and down like a yo-yo. I just wear them around my neck when I can't get them on my finger.

Finally, I needed some clothes to wear as we were going out for tacos and some shopping. My jeans all have stretch to them but my usual ones are falling off me. So on a whim I tried my "thin" pair. They are a size 16 and while they were form fitting they were completely comfortable!!!!! So I took an early weigh-in and I am at 203!!!!! I can't believe I make break the 200 barrier before the end of the year!

And I have all of you to thank for this. Your own successes and encouragement have been keeping me going.

Thanks, LP!

I lost all my weight last year at Christmas time...and hit a plateau during our Biggest Loser contest. Kinda frustrating.
